Constipation

How to treat Constipation

Constipation is a very common problem and it can affect adults, children and infants and most of the time can be treated at home.

Medication to treat constipation is called Laxatives

Types of  laxatives:

Bulk-forming laxatives; ( Fybogel )

They increase the bulk of your stools (faeces) by helping them retain fluid, encouraging your bowels to push the stools out

Osmotic laxatives; ( Lactulose )

These laxatives soften your stools and help make it easier to pass by increasing the amount of water in your bowels

Stimulant laxatives; ( Senokot )

Stimulant laxatives help increase the movement of your bowels by stimulating the nerves that control the muscles lining your digestive tract.

Stool softener laxatives ( Dulcoease )

Stool softeners increase the fluid content of hard, dry stools, making them easier to pass out the stool.
